Cyanea Poon, Co-founder
Cyanea is a story-carrier. She likes listening to stories and letting stories be heard, especially voices that are often silenced and go unheard. She especially likes to capture the stories as visual images, and her computer is stocked with photographs from the crowded streets of Hong Kong, the mountains of Chiang Mai, the skyscrapers at Chicago, and the waves of Lake Superior. She looks at numbers and equations on a daily basis, but she can always find time to listen to your story over a snack of your choice.
JOHANNA DEPENTHAL, co-founder
Johanna is an observer and learner. Fascinated by the natural and social world alike, she loves pointing out the minute behavior of insects and striking up long conversations with strangers. During her most recent plane flights, she learned a great deal about Puerto Rican environmental regulations and diesel engines on cargo ships from her seatmates. Her greatest accomplishment of the past year is learning to drive stick-shift.
